Easily ADDICTIVE! These colorful bars provide crunchiness, energy and a cure for the munchies! Great for lunchboxes, hikes, trips or after a workout at the gym. Our hands can't stay out of the cookie jar on these!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Line a 9 x 13 inch sheet pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. Mix rolled oats, cereal, craisins, coconut and almonds in a large bowl. Set aside. (I cut the coconut with two knives so it will not be stringy.)
  3. In a saucepan, mix corn syrup and brown sugar. Bring to a boil while stirring. Add peanut butter and vanilla. Stir just to blend well.
  4. Pour over oats and fruit mixture. Stir and mix well. Press mixture firmly onto pan. (I place a piece of wax paper on top while pressing hard.) Let cool and cut into bars. Store in air-tight container. Freezes well, if securely wrapped.
  5. Enjoy!

These bars are really good. They remind me a lot of Recipe #63131, but without the big crunch (the others are made with Grape-nuts cereal). The only change I made was to use 1/2 cup corn syrup, and 1/4 cup of honey. I think the honey adds a great flavor to the bars. Thanks for sharing your wonderful recipe, I will definitely be making these again!

I've never had a lot of success with 'no bake' granola bars...until now. This is a terrific recipe. So easy and quick to make. I didn't have everything specified in the recipe, but was able to substitute nicely. That's the beauty of a recipe like this. I didn't have enough craisins, so added some diced dates, pecans in place of the almonds, and because it goes so well with peanut butter, I threw in some milk chocolate chips. Thanks Seasoned Cook for a wonderful treat. Made for the Auzzie/NZ Recipe Swap #26

These are awesome!! I love, love, love cranberry and almond together. I followed the recipe almost exactly, the only change was I replaced the vanilla with almond extract. So good.
